    fill formating cells based on 2 dates (beginning and ending dates)

    based on the attached image... i need help on making the following work,

    - i have 30 rows numbered 1 to 30
    - i have 2 given dates within a month (30 days), a BEGINNING date and an ENDING DATE date (ex. Beginning = June 4, 2010 and Ending = June 18, 2010)

    - shade row 4 (color blue) if the beginning date is June 4, 2010 and continue shading rows 5 to 17 with color blue until such time it reaches the ending date of June 18, 2010 which i would like to be colored red.

    please do forgive me if this is too much of a task, i'm still trying to learn excel and don't have any knowledge in VB. any help is very much appreciated

    Assuming your table starts at A1 with header "Date Received"...

    Select the range of cells, starting at C3 (assuming your upper left most cell to colour is in C3)

    Go to Home|Conditional Formatting

    Select Manage Rules

    Click New Rule

    Select use a formula to determine which cells to format



    Click Format and choose Blue from the Fill tab.

    Then click Ok.

    Click New Rule and apply same conditions with formula:


    Format as Red from Fill tab
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
